When eating in an Austrian restaurant keep in Grinch Santa is this Jolly enough Christmas sweater mind that this is not just “dinner out.” It is a social experience so eating is SLOW, one stays after the meal to talk and socialize while drinking a second beer or schnaps, perhaps coffee and dessert. In many places you can grab a newspaper from a pile and sit for another 2 hours reading, or even play chess. It might be hard to find your waiter or waitress.
And they will NOT come to the table Grinch Santa is this Jolly enough Christmas sweater to see if “everything is alright” or ask if you want another drink. You need to search for them, lol. And when you want to pay the bill – good luck finding your waiter, lol. The bill will seem to be very high but prices are very similar to American restaurant prices. The difference is in the tax and tip…both of which are built into the price of the meal.
